A man suspected in the serial killings of women in Juárez is to be deported to Mexico following an immigration hearing in El Paso
El Paso Times:
Edgar Alvarez Cruz, who is from Mexico and detained in Denver, did not fight his deportation before immigration Judge Thomas C. Roepke.
Cruz had remained in El Paso, held by immigration officials.
Even though Alvarez Cruz has been linked to the murders, Mexican authorities had not issued an arrest warrant for him.
But his lawyer from Mexico, Abraham Hinojos Rubio, said today that his client is not connected to the slaying of women in Juárez.
Cruz, 30, is one of the three men suspected of being connected to the deaths of eight women whose bodies were found in a Juárez cotton field in 2001.
